Virtual Academic Showcase 2020





The INSPIRE Lab, Climate Action Committee, and Sodexo present a live cooking and nutrition education segment filmed in the Fitzwater Studio.

Dr. Laura Christoph

The purpose of this segment is to introduce students to the benefits of plant-based eating for individual health as well as the health of our planet, provide instruction on preparing simple and cost-effective plant-based meals and snacks in a college dorm room or apartment, and help students navigate healthy and sustainable choices offered by the cafeteria, cafe an pub on campus. The script for the show was written by students based on feedback from the climate action committee, nutrition professor, Sodexo dietitian, and fellow students who are plant-based enthusiasts. Recipes for cooking demos was selected based on taste, ease of preparation, cost, and potential to be available at the Franklin Pierce University cafeteria. This segment is a pilot for a larger scale series of videos, cooking demos, and collaboration among the INSPIRE Lab, Climate Action Committee and Sodexo, so feedback on future ideas and topics of interest will be collected at the end of the presentation.
